Thoughts While Shaving
If you live in a Bladen County municipality……a reminder, Early Voting is underway….Questions should be directed to the Bladen County Board of Elections…If you do not vote….don’t complain about the final outcome….
World Series underway….Game one…..KC Royals 5—NY Mets 4….Game two at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, MO. at 8:07 this PM..(Wednesday)
I hope you will check our list of Events in the area for Saturday, October 31…(Halloween)   A great variety of activities capped off by the Bladenboro Beast Feast from 10 to 10….Just one of many….
I continue to dig thru old cardboard boxes discovering all kind of goodies….
Today….A partial list of the WBLA All Bladen County Football Team, the 5th consecutive.  The 1967  “Dream Team” was invited to a banquet at Sam’s Place at White Lake on January 22, 1968, according to the news release.
I must confess, some are not listed….a second page was missing….So, here is what I discovered….
